About the Network

As the only network of its kind in the state, Racial Equity Minnesota (REMN) leverages the strengths of its members to build a more just and equitable Minnesota. The organizations that make up REMN qualified for membership by meeting a set of high industry standards related to experience, expertise, and proven results.

A network of community-based organizations, Racial Equity Minnesota works to address racial equity in the workplace and in educational and community settings. Minnesota has some of the worst racial disparities in Education, Health Outcomes, and Economic Opportunity in the nation. Through education, consultation, and training, REMN member organizations help clients engage in meaningful dialogue about race and racism, increase their awareness and understanding of structural and systemic racial oppression and inequities, and develop the mindset, structures, and practices to make meaningful individual, structural, and systemic change towards a more racially just society.

REMN member organizations help clients build a knowledge base and practical skill sets to make a difference through services like:
